How it Started

One day, our C.E.O. Sam Baker went out fishing with his grandfather around the intercoastal waterway. However, they were shocked and disgusted when they arrived- the usually beautiful waterway was stinking and full of dead fish, poisoned by fertilizer runoff from the nearby fields. They left, devastated by this ruin of native wildlife. The experience stuck with Sam. He brought the issue of poisoned water to his friend and chemistry partner at the University of Central Florida, Gabe DeGalia. They started researching wildlife friendly fertilizers, but the options they found were ineffective, smelly, or difficult to use. They put their minds together and after years of research, trial, error, and finally success came up with WriggleBrew: Growth & Rescue! An all-purpose, clean, low-odor, organic, and completely safe alternative to chemical fertilizers that is at least as effective on all plants, if not more. Sam Baker and Gabe DeGalia have now built a family and friends business dedicated to taking care of the planet and its inhabitants, one bottle at a time.
